Ciao is a complete Prolog system subsuming ISO-Prolog with a novel modular design which allows both restricting and extending the language. Ciao extensions currently include feature terms (records), higher-order, functions, constraints, objects, persistent predicates, a good base for distributed execution (agents), and concurrency. Libraries also support WWW programming, sockets, and external interfaces (C, Java, TCL/Tk, relational databases, etc.). An Emacs-based environment, a stand-alone compiler, and a toplevel shell are also provided.
ocicpplib is a C++ library to communicate with Oracle RDBMS through OCI. It features a JDBC-like interface to Oracle. The goal of the OCI C++ Library is to provide a simple interface to Oracle. It features support for Oracle 8 and 8i, BLOB/CLOB support, ROWID, REFCursor's and Nested Tables.
TinyCOBOL is an effort to bring a free COBOL compiler to Linux. It generates GNU assembler for the i386 Linux platform. A executable binary is then created using the GNU assembler and linker. The project is approaching the first beta release with many statements already implemented.
Xbase (formerly known as xdb) is an XBase compatible C++ class library. It provides C and C++ programmers with a cross-platform class and function library for manipulating Xbase type datafiles and indexes. There is support for .DBF and .NDX files (including support for Dbase III and IV memo fields, dates, and record and file locking), and limited support is also supplied for .NTX (clipper index) files. There is also an HTML user interface class which works well with the Apache Web Server.
Open Simp-X is a powerful Internet platform for everyone, attempting to change programming for the Internet with sharing database information. It strives for scalablility, reliability, and ease of use. The platform consists of a client/server pair. Security is a top priority, and data transfers are encrypted. Open Simp-X achieves scalability through plugins. Plugins can collect information, manipulate it, and send it back to the database. Writing plugins is easy since they do not have to worry about how to send or receive their information, and can focus on manipulating it. Open Simp-X can be set up to retreive data through a LAN or through a Web server.
Aubit 4GL compiler is a programming language based on (and compatible with) Informix-4GL. It provides an easy way to generate screen/form based programs, since statements for handling Windows, Forms, Menus, SQL, and similar are built-in. With support for SQL statements forming an intrinsic part of the language, it's especially suitable for developing database-oriented applications. Database connectivity is provided for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Informix, and others via ODBC. It supports both ncurses (console mode) and GTK+ (GUI mode) output.
